Ga. Tech among top schools for post-grad salaries

Ga. Tech among top schools for post-grad salaries

ATLANTA -- It truly pays to graduate from Georgia Tech.

A new study from NerdWallet ranks the top 25 colleges based on which schools and programs earn students the most money after graduation.

Georgia Tech is the only Georgia school on the list. Its College of Computing ranked No. 12 with an average salary of $63,548 and its College of Engineering ranked NO. 16 with an average salary of $62,662.

When considering tuition costs and acceptance rates, Georgia Tech ranks No. 10 overall.

"Georgia Tech is the only public university in the top 10 list -- meaning it's much more affordable compared to private universities," NerdWallet said. "If you're an in-state resident, annual tuition cost is a paltry $7,938, compared to the average tuition of $44,000 charged by the other top 10 highest universities. Even if you're out-of-state, tuition is still a fraction of the private schools' tuition, $26,148 a year."

Riverwood student's artwork displayed at High Museum

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- A Riverwood International Charter School junior is thrilled that her artwork is on display at the High Museum of Art.

Michel Rodriguez is a semi-finalist in the DREAM@50 Art Contest, which encouraged students to create artwork for the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Only two students from Fulton County made the cut.

Rodriguez used the quote "Let us not satisfy our thirst for freedom (by drinking) from (the cup) of bitterness and hatred" in her painting.

"(Michel) has always been frightened by crows herself and felt like this was a good symbol to add to her piece," Riverwood visual arts teacher Dana Munson said in her description of Rodriguez's artwork. "The crow symbolizes the fear that all people felt during the time of segregation."
